This year, Salvatore Ferragamo launched a capsule shoe collection that included replicas of models once created by a fashion house for American screen stars.
In particular, it included: Foxtrot sandals sewn once for the American film actress Joan Crawford, black shoes with a contrasting nappa leather bow worn by the actress and style icon of her time Gloria Svenson, Assoluta shoes with double straps, created for another American star - Mary Pickford.
The collection also has a pair of oxford shoes and a pair of jockey boots worn by American film actor Rudolph Valentino.
Shoes were recreated from sketches and photographs of that time, which were preserved in the archives of Ferragamo in his Florentine palace Palazzo Spini Feroni. Looking at this collection it is easy to make sure that fashion does not become obsolete, since the models of those distant years are still relevant.
The exhibition in Florence at the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum opened on 24 on May 2018 and will run until 10 on March 2019.
